Hispanic Information and Telecommunications Network
HITN (Hispanic Information and Telecommunications Network) is an entrepreneurial public media entity with various media business activities. This PBS-like network is the first and only non-commercial network targeting the US Latino Market, reaching 44 million homes.
HITN is developing educational digital media content targeting schools and kids at home which will be distributed through its own cloud based infrastructure.
HITN was recently awarded a major five-year, competitive grant from the US Department of Education Ready To Learn (RTL) program. As the grant recipient, HITN is responsible for developing educational trans-media applications to develop English language skills, early literacy skills and early math skills for pre-school aged children, with a specific focus on addressing the learning needs of Latino youngsters. This is first time in the history of Ready To Learn, that a Hispanic organization is responsible for creating RTL content.
HITN is the largest educational broadband spectrum holder in the US. Together, these assets provide the basis for an unprecedented opportunity to help build a mission focused multi-media company.
